Snakes and ladders

Why is there a snake at the top of every ladder? There’s supposed to be a few clear squares before a snake, to give you the chance of avoiding it. I don’t think they know the rules here.

Square One is the starting point of the Slough’s most popular game. I must look out for the snakes and hunt out the ladders.

As the Slough is a bit old fashioned, there’s no Square Zero – no backsliding from this point, then. And no snake can go back beyond here. Snake days, ladder days, square days – bring them on.

I need loaded dice. There’s no point in being smart and then playing games of chance.
